A Postcard from Maryland - Delivered to Castle View Academy

Hello! I'm excited to be sharing over at Castle View Academy about some of the fun things to do and see in my state of Maryland. I actually grew up in western Canada, so when we moved to Maryland a number of years ago, I was seeing it as a tourist and looking for interesting things to do. Now I consider it my home, but I'm still fascinated by all it has to offer and enjoy sharing some of these highlights with others. 

The quick virtual tour of some of the places we've discovered includes:

Historic St Mary's Citywhere the colony of Maryland was first settled.

The replica Maryland Dove, a working square-rigged ship.
The National Monument park at Fort McHenry, where attorney Francis Scott Key wrote his poem The Star-Spangled Banner during the War of 1812.
From the High School Lesson Book - The Star-Spangled Banner - a little history lesson about the War of 1812 and the American anthem on Homeschool Coffee Break @ kympossibleblog.blogspot.com
